I have a WRT54G v2 with DD-WRT 23 and a pair of 8 dbi linksys antennas and this issue affects all the clients connected. My issue is, I can be working fine connected at full-blast anywhere in the house. Usually once every 1-3 days, I'll get randomly dropped and unable to even find my AP. If it is found, I cant connect to it and it'll drop out. A reboot and change of channel usually fixes the problem but sometimes it doesnt. For example, I can be on channel 11 and switching to 6 will help but connection isnt too stable. It is not a problem with WZC, as I have the same issue with my client card drivers with latest drivers. (BTW, i have a broadcom 54g card built in). We have no 2.4 Ghz phones, not even a land-line phone at all! We do live in a set of town homes however. As far as placement of the router, the only other place I can put it really is on the middle floor behind the TV set, though I spend most of my time upstairs on it in my office. Could this be the result of a neighbor's phone causing interference issues? Could the strength of a neighbor's phone next door or even across the street cause this? Thanks!
